Norway killer interrupted at open court hearing

OSLO, Norway (AP) - The man who's admitted carrying out July's bombing and shooting rampage in Norway was in an Oslo court today for his first hearing.
Anders Behring Breivik (AHN'-durs BRAY'-vihk) tried to give a speech describing himself as the "commander" of a Norwegian resistance movement. But the judge cut him off, telling him to stick to the issue at hand.
The hearing was to decide whether to extend Breivik's custody pending his trial on terror charges.
Prosecutors asked for a court order to keep him jailed for 12 more weeks, with restrictions on media access, visitors and mail. Previous court hearings in the case have been closed to the public.
Today's hearing ended with the judge lifting a ban on reporting on court proceedings.
The attacks on July 22 killed 77 people at the government district in Oslo and an island youth camp outside the capital.
